Montpellier is the sun-drenched, cultured capital of the Languedoc region in the South of France, situated but a few miles inland from the Mediterranean Sea. It’s also a youthful, vibrant university town, and one of France’s most multicultural cities, regularly voted the most ‘desirable place to live’ in France. In short, this is the must-visit destination in the area. Happily, Siblu holiday park Le Lac des Rêves is nearby and it’s just a short drive from La Carabasse campsite too.

Beaches and the great outdoors
Montpellier has plenty beaches just a short bus or tram ride away – you can even cycle in under an hour! Try Pavalas, Carnon, or go on a little further to La Grande Motte – there may be a cluster of high rises lining the shore, but persevere and you’ll discover the wonderful beach at Point Zéro Plage. For a breath of fresh air within the city itself, take a detour to the Jardin des Plantes, Montpellier’s botanical gardens and one of the oldest in Europe.

Things to do and special events
As a visitor to Montpellier you will love its car-free city centre. It’s a joy to wander around the narrow streets of the historic Ecusson district, or order coffee and croissant at Place de la Comédie, the hub of Montpellier life. Close to Comédie and just off the tree-lined esplanade, Champs de Mars, with its many bistros and daily market, visit the Musée Fabre. It has extensive European collections and is one of France’s largest museums. Then there’s Montpellier’s Arc de Triomphe, built in honour of Louis XIV. You can climb the 88 steps to the top and be rewarded with the most amazing views over the city. The Mare Nostrum Aquarium is also a delight and a surprise: there are plenty of fish, sharks and penguins to see, but also immensely fun interactive experiences. Try the hurricane simulator, or take to a boat during a ‘perfect storm’.

Local discoveries and hidden gems
Montpellier is rammed with shopping delights. But one enchanting curiosity for all the family is the Pomme de Reinette / Pomme d’Api toy shop on rue de l’Aiguillerie. Adults and children will be transported into a magical world of play and imagination. You can also take a tram to Odysseum, an ultra-modern complex where as well as shops you will find plenty of activities: climbing, bowling, karting, and an ice rink. When it’s time for a pit-stop, Montpellier and the Languedoc region are hard to beat for food and drink: think truffles, herbs, olive oil and seafood. It is also one of the world’s largest wine producing regions, and there are interesting reds, whites and rosés to sample everywhere you go.
